We have been waiting for the chicks to hatch and they hatched earlier than expected.  We had a total of nine chicks (so far).  The children spent all of Monday watching them in the incubator.  On Tuesday the children spent their day holding them.  It was so much fun for them!  We also were able to release two of the remaining four butterflies now that the weather is warmer.  Unfortunately our frog died.  But this too was a wonderful learning opportunity about the cycle of life.
